House Plant Care Tips

Indoor House Plant Care made easy! Learn about the care of flowering and foliage house plants and make your living space healthier and cosier with plants.

I always loved house plants! Even as a child I had a collection of different plants in my bedroom ranging from spider plants, cacti to palm trees. I was always on the hunt for new cuttings or resuscitating plants that other people were getting rid of.

I still keep many different varieties of house plants. One plant, a Beaucarnea I have for at least 20 years and it even moved with me from one country to another and from house to house. I nearly have a personal relationship with it.

I will share some experiences and tips here with you.

Orchids are real indoor plant gems. These plants with their exotic flowers are my personal favorites. Check out our orchid pages for suitable varieties and their care.

Foliage House Plants

Leafy plants are usually more suited to indirect light. Big leaves tend to burn in direct sunlight. Most of these plants have originated from shaded areas like forests. So don't keep them on a hot south-facing window sill.

Benefits Of House Plants

Indoor plants have lots of benefits. They make you feel more relaxed and optimistic. Studies have proven that house plants are able to reduce stress levels. Looking at green plants will make you feel calmer.

Some house plants can be poisonous though. To keep pets and humans safe check out this page.

The plants listed here are not toxic to animals or children.

On top of that indoor plants improve the air quality. Through their foliage they are able to purify the air and remove toxins from household chemicals or paints. They also filter dust out of the air and increase humidity levels.

So indoor plants are not only aesthetic, they are also beneficial to your health! Lots of good reasons to fill your home with house plants!
